Big Truck Road Interference and Collisions
Sharing the road with big rig trucks, tractors and trailers, and other commercial vehicles puts other drivers at risk when tires are blown, malfunctions occur or a traffic jam causes a collision.
These incidents happen more infrequently compared with more common accidents related to drivers not paying attention, texting while driving or distracted driving.
Semi-trucks crash and injure or kill a person every 15 minutes in the United States. This equates to about half a million accidents on the road and nearly 5,000 casualties per year, according to policyadvice.com.

Desrochers, P.C. will hold truck drivers and trucking companies responsible for reckless and poor driving or mistakes on the road that lead to a serious injury or worse, death. Our collective semi-truck accident expertise, across the organization, will ensure you have the best defense.
Building A Semi-Truck Accident Case
Truck drivers must adhere to specific regulations while operating their vehicles on the open road. If they're carrying too much weight, driving or operating unsafely or dangerously, with or without cargo; or failing to meet other standards set for them, these actions can lead to serious injuries or death.
After an accident, you might have questions, anxiety, and stress regarding any loose ends that need to be tied up, in addition to your (or a loved one's) medical care and treatment. The sheer weight of it all, we know, can be too much a burden to bear.
We tap into our network of specialists and accident experts to take it all off of your plate, from dealing with insurance companies to courtroom litigation to coordinating proper medical care for you. When it comes to semi-truck accidents and injuries, we know what to do next.
